“Paint what you love. Know the tools of your medium and they will serve you well. Use your skills every single day and they will multiply exponentially. Most of all, enjoy what you’re doing- even the difficult, frustrating aspects. After all, what could be more fulfilling and exhilarating than being an artist?!”
